Holy Toledo....

Not really sure where that expression came from but it sums up our weather!
Summer has finally decided to show it's fair face to us on the West Coast.  I have
not been envious of the heatwave temps across the States but really - we were not
even close to what some might call summer weather......
The old joke in BC is that if you live on the West Wet Coast -
you don't tan - you RUST!
Yeah for all of us rust-loving junkers!
I am sharing a spiffy Sangria recipe today for what I call "Cheater Sangria".
Couldn't be easier.  Fill a glass with some chopped up fruit or berries - really
anything you have on hand. 

Add half a can of this:

Top up with your favourite red wine:
and A R R I B A  ! !
(an exclamation of pleasure, approval, or elation) got Sangria Baby!

You can make a pitcher full just by adjusting ingredients to your taste.
p.s. this post was not sponsored by San Pellegrino - I just
love the product and the amazingly easy Sangria it helps to make.
You can make the "fussy" Sangria and I have but when company
arrives and you want to look like Martha without all the work....
just give this a go!

YUM and that is EASY! This will be the perfect cool down for us southerners too! 108 degrees to start the day is just too hot. Cooling off to sangria will definitely do.

Happy seeing beautiful!
